I was invited to speak as the keynote at the first annual Game Space AV, a gaming conference held June 26th and 27th, 2015 at the Louis Millet Community Centre, in New Minas, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Game Space AV (Annapolis Valley).
With the arrival of Sam Robichaud (was with Longtail Studios) and Stephen Brown (of Game Radiator), I decided to invite them on stage to do an indie game developer's panel. It worked out well for all the students to ask away with their questions. I hope we helped with good advice!
(Unfortunately I have no photos of the event. I hope to update this post in the future!)
Much thanks to Valerie Kneen-Teed for organizing the event and inviting us to attend.
That is all!
